I know that I’m speaking and you are listening, but can you hear me?
My words say that I’m okay, but can you hear the pain?
I say that I’m doing well, that I’m meeting friends, but can’t you hear the lies?
I tell you that I don’t think about you, that I don’t think about us, but can’t you hear the truth in the truth in the way that I look at you?

We talk about everything going on in our lives, but can’t you hear my mind talking about all we could be doing together?
We say our goodbyes, can’t you hear that I want you to stay?
We take walk away, but can’t you hear my heart walking by your side?
I continue the conversation long after you’re gone, can you hear me?
